He doesn't have a long NHL history, so the veteran would probably have to be the D coach. Terry Murray, maybe? Eakins has had the same assistants, Derek King and Gord Dineen, all four years in Toronto, and both guys have been around the NHL since the 80's, so that would work as a package.
Yup, good points about Eakins.
